Jordan Flaschner raised from the button to 1,800,000, Jeff Trudeau called from the small blind, and Lunique Petiote moved all in from the big blind for about 11.3 million. Flaschner tanked for a while before he called, and Trudeau quickly folded.

Petiote showed Jd10h, and he needed to improve to stay alive against Flaschner’s As3c.

The board came Qc9c7h4d3s — Petiote flopped an open-ended straight draw, but improved no further. Flaschner won the pot with a pair of threes to eliminate Petiote in third place.
